As a business owner and just generally busy human, you may not always feel like you have time for books…

“30 minutes of uninterrupted reading? Yeah….have you met my life?”

But being run on your feet busy is not always a sign that you’re actually getting done in your business.

So how is reading a book going to help that? Because in my mind books are the ultimate productivity hack!

You have this person, the been-there-done-that EXPERT on what it is you are trying to do…

They’ve spent the better part of their (working) lifetime accumulating all this knowledge, and lessons learned the hard way that they now have perfect 20/20 hindsight on.

Then they take all of that, cutting out all the wasted time, energy, and resources, and condense it all down to 250 odd pages that will fit in the palm of your hand.

It took them years to learn what you will now be able to polish off in just a couple days!

I’m not the only one who feels this way!

Here’s what Warren Buffet had to say on the topic;

“Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”

So if you are currently scratching your head for how to grow your business, you can never go wrong with investing in a good book!

Here are 6 books that I recommend every web designer read!

3 business Mindset books every web designer should read


Mindset Book #1

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

“You’re not good at that.”

“Why would anyone buy from you when there are so many other designers out there?”

“Nobody is going book you if you charge more.”

You’ll never be as talented or successful as _________.”

If you’ve ever been held captive by negative thoughts in your business, then I want you to put a pin in your current summer reading list and move this absolutely mindset goldmine to the top of your list!

It’s going to be pretty hard to build your empire if every time you sit down to work you are paralyzed by self-doubt.

So if fear of rejection, criticism, failure, or just generally like an imposter is keeping you from doing hard things and growing your business, then You Are A Badass is definitely required reading!

So if fear of rejection, criticism, failure, or just generally feeling like an imposter is keeping you from doing hard things and growing your business, You Are A Badass is pretty much required reading!

Jen will keep you laughing, and feeling like straight-up badass who can handle anything life throws your way!


Mindset Book #2

Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

This one’s an oldie but a goodie!

And it’s just the mindset book you need if you’ve been holding on to limiting beliefs about your worth, or about how much money you are capable of making in your business.

Feeling frustrated by where you are financially in your business?

Maybe, subconsciously, you’ve been setting your goals super low to avoid disappointment?

Or maybe you’ve been telling yourself that “this is all there is” and you’ll never be able to bust out of the income ceiling you’ve hit…

If that’s the case, then you need to get your hands on Think & Grow Rich.

Oh, and even though it’s technically a financial book, it has nothing to do with boring investments, or stiff sounding strategy.

It’s all about making money. Lot’s of it. Using your mind.

As Henry Ford said:

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”

The only person getting in the way of your business making you more money is YOU. So if your current money mindset could use transforming, then this book is for you!


Mindset Book #3

The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

There’s no point learning about new mindsets if you don’t have a solid plan for actually applying them to your every day life.

So in order to make sure your new rah-rah, can-do attitude sticks, you need to develop some intentional habits for how you’ll begin each new day with them in mind.

The Miracle Morning is your roadmap for making that happen!

I honestly heard about this book about a bajillion times before I finally carved out the time to sit down and read it.

And now I see why it was the book on everyone’s lips. I devoured it. And then secretly kicked myself for not picking it up sooner.

So what’s it about? In his book, Hal lays out a morning routine that is guaranteed to have you taking on your day from a place of calm, confidence, and focus.

Practice the Miracle Morning, and miracles will start happening in your life.

Why?

Because YOU decided they would.

3 books to improve your skills & make you a better web designer


Design Book #1

Brand Brilliance by Fiona Humberstone

Now, some of you might be thinking:

“Oh, I don’t plan on becoming a brand designer as well as a web designer, so I’ll just skip right over this one.”

And I see your logic there, but just because you don’t plan on offering brand design services doesn’t mean that you, as a web designer, don’t need to know how to build a killer brand.

Whether you’ve intentionally designed it, or are just letting life take its course and define your business for you, you have a brand.

And every day, your potential clients are deciding whether or not to give you their money based on that brand!

In Brand Brilliance, Fiona shows you how to build your brand right the first time, so you aren’t pouring precious time, resources, and energy into speaking to the wrong people (or worse, speaking to no one.)

And your brand isn’t just your logo.

It’s everything you do, and everywhere you show up in any way your business.

And in order to stand out among the competition, you can’t afford to be lukewarm or wishy washy on your branding.

If you are currently feeling like you have to beg people to work with you, and you wish there was a way to make yourself the obvious choice for the exact person you dream of serving, then you’d be crazy not to make room for this one your bookshelf!

Get ready to fall in love with your business again!


Design Book #2

Logo Design Love by David Airey

For all the reasons you need Brand Brilliance, you need this book too!

(Not to mention it will come super in handy if you ever do branch out and start offering branding identity & logo design to compliment your current web design packages!)

There’s nothing worse than coming up with a logo idea for your business, only to have it look completely outdated a year later when the trends it was built on become passé.

David is the king of practical tips for creating logos that get the job done, as well as stand the test of time as trends change and evolve.

Not only that, he also shares an insider’s look at how the most successful designers handle the client process, something that can be easily translated into pretty much any creative service niche!

Ready to use your own visual brand identity to set yourself apart and solidly capture the attention of the clients you are hoping to?

Add this to the list!


Design Book #3

How to Style Your Brand by Fiona Humberstone

Again, even if you have zero ambitions of becoming an actual brand stylist yourself, your brand needs this book.

It’s like stepping onto the set of ‘What Not To Wear’ and having thee absolute expert style your entire business…

Only now (thanks to Fiona’s book) that expert is YOU!

No more throwing together a mashup of random, colors, elements and fonts to try to nail down a design.

How to Style Your Brand takes you behind-the-scenes on world class (but still super relatable) brands to help you understand why top successful designers make the design decisions they do, and how to take those same principles and apply them to your own unique niche and projects.

She also shares the best-practices for incorporating your (or your client’s) brand identity when deciding what will live on their website.

Ready to learn build a brand that is cohesive across the board, and that convert (not confuse) your ideal client?
